Star Wars Patchwork Blanket



To celebrate the launch of the The Last Jedi I decided to make this fun blanket, combining a soft and cosy fleece with the fun printed cottons.

You Will Need:

  • Star Wars BB-8 Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre

  • Star Wars Resistance Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre

  • Star Wars Millennium Falcon Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre

  • Grey Blending Fabric - approx 1 metre

  • Grey Fleece for Backing

How to Make:

Step 1

Cut your Star Wars squares using a 6” x 6” quilting ruler and a rotary cutter. You will need 32 Grey blender squares, 12 Resistance squares, 12 Millennium Falcon squares and 8 BB-8 squares.

Step 2

Once you have finished cutting, lay the squares out in 8 rows of 8. This will make a square blanket, you can cut more squares if you would like to make a rectangle.


Step 3

Start sewing row by row using a 1cm seam allowance. Once you have sewn every row, press the seams in alternative directions per row. And sew the rows together, again using a 1cm seam allowance.




Step 4

Give the front of the blanket a good press.


Step 5

Using the front of the blanket as a guide, measure and cut the backing fleece.

Step 6

Pin and sew right sides together using a 1.5cm seam allowance. Remember to leave a gap to turn the blanket through.

Step 7

Once you have turned through, carefully press the edges and sew up the gap you left.
